Residences are deconstructedThe final effect develops

Ideas of environmental and social sustainability are embedded in the project through passive techniques. The primary material for construction is local brick, one that can sustain local communities through sourcing and construction of the project. Learning Communities have been linked to positive student engagement, overall satisfaction with college, increased interpersonal skills, and a greater understanding of diversity. But there is much more to it than meets the eye.

The final effect develops spatial adjacencies and internal relationships between programs or define territories and boundaries. Residences are deconstructed into clustered rooms around individual courtyards, in a pergola-like framework that shades walkways and merges patches of living areas. You are not currently authenticated. Students will get to know their new home while learning traditional First Year Seminar topics like time management, study strategies, campus involvement, and career preparation.

This course will explore the complex relationship between sustainability and consumption, paying specific attention to the myriad ways in which individual consumption practices shape global outcomes. The Sustainable Living and Learning Community is open to all incoming first-year students. And, of course, it raises issues of intellectual sovereignty within the faculty.

This also features as shading for learning spaces and seating, where windows are extruded into the surfaces. It is deep, integrative, and visionary. In short, students who take part in a Learning Community leave their first year with the tools and resources necessary to be highly successful in college and beyond.

The Sustainability Learning Community focused on the interconnections between science, business and philosophy, in relation to the concept of sustainability. The studio also experiments with fluid surfaces and geometries, mathematically generating a sequence of lines and potentials. Homes also reflect traditional settlement patterns by extending the idea of a village through a series of domestic spaces. This learning community is open to students in any major.
